GRAMMY award winning, country music icon, Clint Black will bring his 1995 chart-topping holiday album to life this November with the debut of his new musical, Looking for Christmas at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego, CA on November 20th.Â The musical is a heartwarming original story that follows Staff Sergeant Mike Randolf and his family as they settle back into life after he returns from Afghanistan.Â His youngest daughterâ€™s search for the true meaning of Christmas helps him make peace with his past on the battlefield.
â€œIâ€™m so excited to announce that Iâ€™m bringing my album Looking For Christmas to life this holiday season in Musical form,â€ said Black. â€œAs a huge fan of Christmastime, Iâ€™m always thinking of our military families and what they face during the holidays. Iâ€™m especially happy to highlight their story with Looking For Christmas.â€

It is one of the most storied careers in modern music. Clint Black surged to superstardom as part of the fabled Class of ’89, reaching #1 with five consecutive singles from his triple-platinum debut, Killin’ Time. He followed that with the triple-platinum Put Yourself in My Shoes, and then a string of platinum and gold albums throughout the ’90s. Perhaps most impressively, Clint wrote or co-wrote every one of his more than three dozen chart hits, including “A Better Man,” “Where Are You Now,” “When My Ship Comes In,” “A Good Run of Bad Luck,” “Summer’s Comin’,” “Like the Rain” and “Nothin’ But the Taillights,” part of a catalog that produced 22 #1 singles and made him one of the most successful singer/songwriters of the modern era.
Along the way, Clint has sold over 20 million records, earned more than a dozen gold and platinum awards in the U.S. and Canada, landed nearly two dozen major awards and nominations, including more than a dozen GRAMMY nominations, and earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
